EROSION DUE TO LANDSLIDES



Example Type:
Earth Erosion

Information:
Location: Hillside
Record Date: 06.04
Season: Spring
Elevation: 300 Feet

Notes:
There are many different ways large masses of soil can move down a hillside. This photo shows a landslide scar. It is characterized as a slide movement because of the concave scar (it's into the hillside). This type of slide often happens after long periods of heavy rainfall and the soil can no longer absorb moisture. Huge chunks of the hillside just give way and slide down the slope.
